The Chateau de Canisy
An Exceptional Historic Place, a Family Estate in privileged surroundings
The Chateau de Canisy is a remarkable national historic building in the middle of an 800-acre (300 hectares) park with ponds, forests and land. It has been in the same family for a thousand years.
The chateau is located in Normandy, 45 minutes away from the landing beaches and the Mont Saint Michel, only 30 minutes away from the town of Bayeux and right in the middle of the first horse breeding area in France.
Being listed as one of the seven wonders of the Manche area, the chateau is among the select few family chateaux in France that are so well preserved.
It consists of two main wings built in the 13th and 14th centuries and has more than 50 rooms including a monumental, granite staircase built by architect François Gabriel (the ancestor of Ange Gabriel who was the Versailles architect), a dovecote and medieval towers, several drawing rooms, a music room, two dining rooms, a theatre, a bar, cellars and attics.
